Radiohead are releasing a new album on Oct 10th and as has been widely
publicised the band are letting fans decide how much they want to pay for
the digital-download version of the album. I've not been a fan of anything
they've done since 'Ok Computer'....I've just never been able to get into
anything since then - so I figured I'd give them the benefit of the doubt
and pre-order the new album.
I didn't want to pay full whack or what I'd usually pay as firstly, I don't
think I'm going to like this album (so it's likely I'll only give it a
couple of listens then delete it) and secondly; they've given me the chance
to pay 1p for an album and not feel guilty about it! Finally, if I do like
it I'll go and buy the CD when it comes out in December, so I'm not paying
CD price for it now.
This is an experiment for the band and I'm happy to take part - it's an
experiment for me too. I decided I'd pay 10p (plus the credit card
transaction fee of 45p)...and I'll let you know what it's like on October
